NOS Primavera Sound is the Portuguese counterpart of the Primavera Sound festival that has been celebrated in Barcelona for more than fifteen years.
It follows the same artistic guidelines as the Barcelona musical event, distinguished by the variety of styles and new bands, highlighting both the local scene and international artists.
The Portuguese version of the festival has been taking place since 2012 in Porto, a city that speaks for itself. This is perhaps why the festival receives about 80 thousand people annually, spread over the three days.
The NOS Primavera Sound is already a must stop in the panorama of European festivals.
Porto is the second largest city in Portugal. A charming town located near the Douro river mouth, elected “Best European Destination 2014″ by the “European Consumers Choice”.
Oporto has a unique culture, buildings with a fantastic architecture, unforgettable cuisine, friendly people, lots of nightlife, numerous places of tourist and architectural interest and even a historic center that is World Heritage since 1996, plus the gorgeous Casa da Música designed by a renowned architect Rem Koolhaas.
